Community Engagement in Australia
We're here to serve Australia
We're serious about playing a key role in the communities around our key operations by supporting STEM education, enriching communities, and supporting charitable causes locally and nationally. Our teams here in Australia carry out an extensive program of outreach across the country.
In 2018, we have three key community partners:
Australian War Memorial
Leidos Australia is supporting the the Digital Experience team at the Australian War Memorial to deliver 360 video experiences of five Large Technology Objects (LTOs).
The 360 degree digital content project aims to captivate the Memorial’s visitors and the general public by drawing them into the heart of a collection object to tell another piece of its story.
The five LTOs this project intends to capture are:
- a Mark IV tank from the First World War
- the Avro Lancaster B1 ‘‘G for George” from the Second World War
- a Lockheed Hudson bomber from the Second World War
- HMAS Sydney (IV) deployed in the First Gulf War
- a Bushmaster Australian Army Protected Mobility Vehicle, which saw action in Iraq and Afghanistan
Content developed for the 360 video experiences will enable audiences to view the LTOs inside and out, as if they were visiting the object in real life. The 360 video experiences will be able to be viewed on a standard desktop, where the user can use their mouse to interact with the object. They will be available to access on the Memorial’s website.

Fighting for your country is hard, but the fight afterwards can be even harder.
Bravery Trust provides urgent financial support to veterans, current and former members of the Australian Defence Force and their families. They provide assistance to those who have suffered an injury or illness as a result of their service and who are experiencing hardship.
Like Bravery Trust, Leidos Australia is a young organisation, having been operational since 2013. Our business is all about our people and we have a number of veterans working for us. We have a growing team of over 1,000 people and they are thrilled to get behind the great work of Bravery Trust to support our veterans and their families.
If you wish to directly support them you can make a tax deductable donation through their website.

Leidos Australia is delighted to be an Official Supporter of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, being held in Sydney, Australia on 20-27 October this year.
More than 500 wounded, injured and ill serving and veteran defence personnel from 18 nations will compete in an inspiring display of strength, resilience and courage.
The Invictus Games Sydney 2018, presented by Jaguar Land Rover, celebrate the healing power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding of, and respect for, those who serve their country.
The Leidos Australia team is very excited to support this incredible event. With a number of veterans working for the company across the globe this is a fitting sponsorship for Leidos Australia.
